    Default Individual Schaller Mini's

    Anyone know if you can buy indivdual Schaller Mini anywhere? I scratched one up bad on a new guitar and just wanted one without buying whole new set. I am looking for new or used mint, nothing in used condition. I am at work, so can't you off the top of my head if I need a right or a left - the guitar is a 3 x 3 like wolfgangs.

    Any help would be great - Steve

    Not that I know of, at least not in the shops I've gone to. How bad are the scratches? Is it chrome or anodized? Regardless, your best bet is to call some repair shops. Sometimes they have spares lying around from swaps. I did that for an old vintage Fender tuner, and a replacement Grover tuner on my old Les Paul.

    You are probably right. I did a lot of searching and the only thing I could find was Schaller locking tuners sold individually from Warmoth. It is chrome and tried to buff it out a bit, but I caught it too deep with a flat head screwdriver.

    I was gonna suggest going through mailorder with a company like Warmoth, but honestly, by the time you pay for shipping and whatnot, it becomes an expensive part, unless you go Priority mail, plus they'll probably upcharge for the single. Honestly though, just check around some shops. I used to have all sorts of leftovers from refits. Pickguards, tuners, pickups, knobs. Usually in pretty good shape. Some people just like to personalize their instrument to taste, so there's usually nothing wrong with the parts. They may have a little wear and tear, or tarnishing, but chrome usually shines right back up. My guess is you could walk out with a replacement from a shop for around 10 bucks give or take. The guy I use sells replacement Schallers' and Gotohs' for around $7.00 cash. Their so common.

    I have a shop I'll try tomorrow. They deal in a lot of used stuff, so maybe they have one around.

    Thanks for looking, let me know if you find one. I am also looking locally tomorrow, so I hope I can get lucky. it is on the right side of the headstock looking at it from the front, but it also a left handed guitar, so I think I actually need a left.
